-- obama outwites the bloviators. if i did not know better, i would say that was written by rush limbaugh. >> where i am coming from, the press got almost everything about this campaign wrong at various stages, starting with the fact it was going to be routed guiliani verses hillary clinton election year. it's stymied people because they -- obama stymied people because they just did not know what to make of this, the first black presidential candidate that had a chance of winning and one of the most bizarre things that i thought of the press was to see a largely white political press corps just assume that whites more races around the country -- whites were racists are around the country and would not vote for him. when he won in iowa, the shock to the press corps was extraordinary. could not believe that hillary clinton was not mopping this guy up. throughout the campaign, and this happened in the liberal media as well as non-partisan media. there was this feeling that every white person in western pennsylvania hates black people and will vote against him. they assumed the country was ra

it was from rush limbaugh. >> this was going to be a guiliani verses hillary clinton election year. ipeople did not know what to mae of this all cider, first black presidential candidates that had a chance of winning. one of the most bizarre things was to see a largely white political press corps that just as soon eat that whites are racist and when that vote for him. when he won in iowa this, the shock was enormous. they could not believe that hillary clinton was not mopping this guy up. there was a feeling that every white person in western pennsylvania aid to black people and they will vote against him. they assumed a country that was racist when it was not in terms of obama. >> if we followed you around all week and did you invite is, we will, where do we see you and how w-- when i read your columns i see things that i do not see from anyone else. >> i would be on the phone corresponding with people. i am at home when i write because i cannot get anything done sitting in an office. i really need television. some of the riding i do at night. i tend to work really late on thursday night.
when you look at the polls. gregg: rush limbaugh increased the ante, calling deaths morocco -- calling barack obama hitler. some people found that offensive. look, are both sides not in a way guilty of inciting anger and obliterating good constructive civil discourse? >> absolutely. it is funny that nancy pelosi would say that they are opposed to obstructing other viewpoints. if they take that when it comes to speaking on the house floor, they might be more willing to listen to republican amendments. we reported this on human events. we have actually found some postings on craigslist for groups like summer for change, where it looks like democrats are recruiting people to come to the town hall as well. gregg: the president is asking people to back out people whose e-mail seems fishy. come on. is that not hypocritical for a former community organizer to complain about community organizing? >> this is more about setting a straight. if the democrats often not fight back, there is no way it will get through. republicans organizing in a town hall meeting tomorrow, going up there to defend h
is a rush limbaugh, michael steele, new gingrich? is important that the party or movement of conservatives have a leader as definable? morrice is it the open source there could be multiple leaders, multiple groups and they will have the same effect and turn the country around and take back the white house and congress over the next two years? >> there is plenty of time. this time four years ago few americans knew barack obama. there is plenty of time to revolve a a leader for the next presidential cycle but in the meantime as volunteers or activists have to take a role and and gage and build within our communities. the problem i think has happened in her on movement through the years it is a lot of conservatives went to washington to do good. they did very well. they stayed and bought into the system. they bought into the benefits of the system and the power. we need to return to a movement of activists. >> a number of conservative leaders, tom delay said we do not need reagan anymore we need a new path, all of us have lived the past 40 or 50 years hearing about kennedy and the last electi
is afraid of rush limbaugh, apparently, because he is encouraging all this stuff. >> the democrats are pulling a rabbit out of a hat, and the republicans are handing the democrats their rabbit. the democrats have no argument. they have no fathers. they -- they have no facts. they don't really have a bill. if people were really just to stand up quietly and civilly raise questions, the money doesn't add up, the c.b.o. has said that you say it is going to control costs but it increases it by a trillion dollars. all of this stuff, it's really out there. they would be winning these debates as they were before the town halls. what is happening is this is causing a backlash. it is completely unnecessary. it is shooting yourself in the foot. if you want to demonstrate, you want to shout, do you it outside carrying a sign. when you walk inside, you ask a question, is this going to have two effects? one, a public opinion will make people unsympathetic to those who oppose the bill, and secondly, it is going to give a great excuse for the democrats when congress returns to push a partisan bill
the president retake center stage? >> i hadn't seen the rush limbaugh thing. that is insane. what he's saying is insane. the first thing is it has been conventional wisdom among the smartest people in washington, this is a tough issue that needs to be done on a bipartisan basis. the obama administration decided not to. leaders of both parties could have gone out to the meetings. they didn't do that. they chose more or less a democratic plan and now all hell is breaking loose. it's not just the crazy, among who we just saw some. if you take overall ratings for health care, the american public is as skeptical as they were when clinton care collapsed. so, it's not just the crazies. there is a real public concern about real issues. >> when you look at this from the approval rating and the quinnipiac poll, the president's handling of health care. here are the numbers. approvals at 39%, disarovals at 52%, erin. that's the question. big battle lines about whether this is manufactured grassroots organizing, opposition against health care. the truth is there are people who are angry and there are peop
's comparing health care reform to a panel of death? rush limbaugh compared it to naziism. is sarah jumping on rush's bandwagon? more lawmakers jumping on the bandwagon. the president asked for the money for four jets. congress double down, decided to allow enough money for eight. recession? deficit anyone? and here's a shocking plane story, a continental flight packed with passenger forced to divert because of rotten weather as if that's not enough of a headache, the people were trapped on the plane overnight at the airport. not allowed off. we're going to talk to one of those passengers. good morning, everyone. i'm contessa brewer. the big story we're watching, divers are in the hudson river trying to recover the bodies of two victims still mising from saturday as mid air collision. nine people in all were killed when a private plane and a sight seeing helicopter collided over the hudson. the bodies of seven people have been pulled from the river. earlier new york city mayor michael bloomberg addressed concerns that crowded airspace should have more restrictions. >> sadly, you know, somet

news and to disrupt -- rush limbaugh and to disrupt the organized campaigns. you noticed that most of the disruption is in democratic town halls. they are not disrupting republican town halls. that let's you know it is planned. unfortunately like this last lady said, they are usually older people who are already on socialize medicare and either don't realize they are on socialized medicine already. texting host: thank you, jamie. a common from teresa from twitter. peaceably assemble. " the new york times" on the front-page reports on how people start their day with waking up and getting on line first. coffee can wait, the day's first stop is on line. i will pull this and just read a piece of the story. the surge in early risers is reflected an on line and wireless traffic patterns. internet companies that used to watch traffic levels rise only when people booted up at work now see the uptick much earlier. a boston company that analyzes internet use says web traffic and the united states gradually decline to midnight until 6:00 a.m. on the east coast and then a huge morning caffeine
has been showcased in a book touted by rush limbaugh himself entitled great american conservative women. it is fitting that her work should be included in such a collection of literature as this text given that she is an unyielding supporter of young women
, they will start to win. do not respond to their absurd attacks. the key is not to fall for it. rush limbaugh said if conservatives spent their time responding to the never-ending series of baseless attacks from liberals, they would be lost to the cause of truth and freedom forever. awesome point. book, liberals are angry and they don't take the time to equip themselves with the facts. so look at that as a great opening for yourself. do what ann coulter does. when they call them names, laugh. just laugh. that is exactly what ann coulter does. [applause] >> they have no idea what to do with that. when you start laughing, they are completely at a loss. it is laughable what they are doing. and then just tell them it's the oldest trick in the book and it will not work for me. it is one thing for me to be up here today telling you to laugh in the face of liberals, and in your classes and to laugh in the face of your professors. i know it is another thing entirely to be able to actually do it, to laugh at those who call you names. it is tough to dig deep, to believe in something bigger than yourself, to
